Synthetic CPU and Memory Tests
SiSoft Sandra 2011
The latest version of SiSoft Sandra offers up a lot of new features including GPU performance, OpenCL, etc.
Synthetic CPU performance of the FX-8150 comes in between the Sandy Bridge i7-2600k and i5-2500k as AMD predicted and ahead of the 6-core Phenom II processor. Memory bandwidth is nice and sits between the Sandy Bridge processor and Nehalem processor results with just over 16 GB/s.
